I'm Wearing Pants and Other Musings

You know things are different in your life when your goal for the day is to just wear pants. I mean 'real' pants; no stretch, no Lululemon and no drawstrings to boot. To keep things interesting my other goal was to put on a bra, leave the apartment and take my baby for her well baby check up at the paediatricians office.

Yep, my goal for the day was to simply wear jeans. I like to keep my post partum goals simple. Just the other day my goal was to make the bed but I never did get around to it. It felt fantastic to get dressed and leave the apartment. I had grand ideas of going out for lunch or grabbing a delicious latte at my favourite place, but that fantasy was quickly halted with the pelting cold rain coming down at all angles. However, I wore jeans and my goal was accomplished! Once we were back home I quickly traded in my jeans for pants that were stretchy and also had a drawstring!

good for you for keeping your goals simple and achievable.  It's important to keep them realistic isn't it?  One of my goals in the newborn stage used to be having a shower every day.  It always helped me feel better and more awake, and ready to start the day (with a cup of coffee of course).  Looking forward to seeing you and Josie some time soon.
Love, Heidi

Thanks Heidi! My biggest adjustment so far is trying to get myself up and out of bed to be a mum to Ben. The mornings are a killer for me right now! Hoping it either gets easier to push through the mornings soon!

Yep! We've got some good ones for sure! I love hearing from other mamas that had babies at SPH.

Do you still fit your preggo jeans? My thought is I might wear them post-partum until such time that they fall off my body.  They are *so* comfy (second only to yoga pants) that I am reluctant to give them up.  Plus, my tummy gets cold and the extra panel might help me suck things in ;)

Funny enough I was wearing my dark denim maternity jeans today. I definitely stretched them out with my big belly (9 lb baby!) but they still work. Probably for a bit longer but am hoping for 'real' real jeans soon. The panel does help cinch things in though ;) you are right about that one!!!
